Joe Manausa Real Estate (2014 to Present)
Focusing on a consumer-centered digital marketing system, Joe Manausa Real Estate is considered one of the forefront leaders in using digital (internet) marketing to help people sell and buy a home.

Joe Manausa Real Estate was formed in 2000 by a merger between First Realty of Tallahassee and CENTURY 21 Advanced Realty. The CENTURY 21 franchise offered a great opportunity for a company with clients in many other parts of the world. With a real estate support system recognized as the top in the industry, CENTURY 21 served as an excellent source of information prior to internet becoming popular in industry.
First Realty and RE/MAX Realty North (1992-1999)
First Realty was formed when Joe determined that it was not beneficial to renew the franchise that the company had utilized for the previous six years. Needing a stronger support system, particularly with the growth of the internet, Joe decided to “go independent” and take the time to examine all of the offerings in the real estate franchise business. As a reminder to our reader, this was before the internet so it was beneficial for local offices to affiliate with a franchise. While many “flavors” existed, Joe knew that the better companies would be embracing the internet as the new premier marketing medium in the real estate industry. After over a year of study, the choice of CENTURY 21 was made.
Killearn Sales Center (1991-1992)
When Joe left the Army in late 1991, he knew that he wanted to accomplish two important things:

Joe learned sales and the real estate business by selling new construction homes and residential homesites for Killearn Sales Center in Killearn Lakes. By May 1992, Joe had moved on to owning RE/MAX Realty North.
US Army (1987-1991)
Joe served in the United States Army for over four years at 2nd Lieutenant and 1st Lieutenant ranks and was promoted to Captain.
